This is a transcript of Yuri Gagarian - First Manned Spaceflight on Newsfeed...Today is the 50th anniversary of one of the worst days in America’s fight for space! On April 12th 1961, playboy cosmonaut and Neil Armstrong’s sworn enemy, Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarian was the first man to be launched into outerspace and where he ran into that monkey we left up there. Sputnik, now this!? We’ve forgiven the commie bastard and celebrated his achievement by referencing him in the Google logo. Putting him in the same category as Arbor Day and Hong Kong’s children’s day.
